Product Description


Do away with your space-consuming workout equipment and consolidate with the innovative Bowflex SelectTech 1090 adjustable dumbbell. Offering adjustable resistance from 10 pounds all the way up to 90 pounds (in 5-pound increments), the SelectTech 1090 does the work of multiple dumbbells in one. No longer will you need to dedicate more than a few feet of space to your workout area. The 1090 dumbbell is outfitted with a single handle connected to a dial mechanism. As you turn the dial upward, the handle latches on to additional weight plates, with an easy-to-read display telling you how much weight you've chosen. At lighter weights, you can perform basic toning and strength exercises, such as curls and raises, while at heavier weights, you can do more demanding lifts like shrugs and lunges. Best of all, you won't have to buy new dumbbells as you get stronger, as the SelectTech 1090s provide all the weight you need.

These take up virtually no space in the corner of a room.

I'd highly recommend the purchase of the Bowflex stand that accommodates both the 1090 & 552 Bowflex SelectTech Dumbbells.
fair & balanced
The Dumbbells are a little large and awkward at first but once you get used to them, it's not even noticable.

First off, this is a great product, but I will not spend the time reviewing the great things about this product because I feel there are many other reviews that have already done that. Here are some things I found I thought should be helpful to others:

1) In the "most helpful critical review" it is listed that the rectangular chrome handles are a pain to deal with. This almost compelled me not to buy this product. However, after trying out the DBs, I did not find it much of a bother. The "rectangular" handles are pretty much round with a hint of "rectangulariness" if you will. Not much of a bother to me, but some thick tape cloth should remedy the problem if you have sensitive hands.

2) To those that do not want to buy the $150 stand, I found that instead of picking the DBs off the floor, you can simply make use of the shipping boxes as a custom made stand. Just turn over the Styrofoam and cut off the top lid of the box and place the DB within the box and you are set. The DBs are still a little low, but it is better than picking them off the floor.

3) If you ever have the problem of a DB not fitting within the base evenly, the dials are stuck, and one of the plates does not attach to the DB, do not send in the DB to the manufacturer just yet (I had this occur to me today). After some experimenting, I finally figured out that all I had to do was remove the DB from the base and remove the plates from the base until the base was completely emptied. Then, with the emptied base, place the DB back within the base (without remaining plates on the floor). You should be able to switch the dials back to 10 lbs with plates from the DB coming off. Then simply place back all the plates within the base and place the DB back within the base with the plates ready to go.

I've been using the 1090's for a few weeks now. I have a very limited amount of workout space in my apartment so I don't have the room for a full dumbbell set. This set provides 90 lbs for each arm which is more than enough for every exercise that I do. 50 lbs was not enough so I'm glad I bought the 1090's vs. the 1050's.

The 1050's have a nice rubberized handle grip but the 1090's have an all metal grip with a rough texture. I find them less comfortable than the rubberized grip but a little tape takes care of the issue.

The dial selector is very good and is super easy to use. It just takes a couple seconds to dial in the weight you want and off you go. This is a very high quality product and it works very well.

The only drawback I've seen is that the bar is pretty long so you are using a large and long dumbbell even when you only need 10 lbs of weight. I've had some trouble doing double arm curls because the weights hit when I get my arms close enough together to do the exercise properly. To compensate, I just do one set with each arm individually. 90% of the exercises I do are not affected by the length so its not a significant issue for me.

I highly recommend this set. You should consider getting the stand to save your back. 90 or 180 lbs is a lot of weight to lift from the floor and especially if you are doing it repetitively. The stand is at the right height and orientation to allow easy pickup of the dumbbells without straining your back.

I bought the 1090 dumbbell set (two dumbbells) and the stand new for $600 at Play it Again Sports. I haven't seen any deals that good online. If you don't want to spend the money for a full set of dumbbells and/or you if you have limited space, then I highly recommend this product. I have to say I still enjoy dialing in the weight every time I do it. I guess the gadget factor is something to consider also :-)

I would still rate these highly for design and functionality in a home gym, but not engineered to meet the use for which they are designed. And they are not intended to be user repairable.

No, I did not drop the weights, as warned against in the documentation and in stickers applied to each dumbbell. After doing declines to failure with 90s, I rolled them onto the floor as gently as possible. This caused the tab at the end of the indexing arm to exit the groove on the inside of the end spindle on which the selector dial rides. No problem to fix, if I had or could find any documentation on assembly, which follows no logic that is apparent from the outside. Several minutes of very practiced Googling turned up nothing.

The option Bowflex offers is to send them in for service. I'm guessing that means a couple of hundred dollars in labor and shipping and being without the weights for a couple of weeks. I am left with the poor option of prying on the various plastic surfaces until I can find the final assembly point, hopefully doing only cosmetic damage.

I understand that Bowflex cannot suggest or facilitate user disassembly because of the liability for plates falling from an improperly reassembled unit. But, knowing this, they should have made it bulletproof. The indexing arm as it is composed (inexplicably) of four small metal plates screwed to the bottom of the visible plastic part, is not this. There is nothing about the basic selection mechanism that could not be made to survive actual abuse. It fails, as so many things in my experience, where the plastic, resilient but subject to wear from abrasion, meets the metal, unspecified alloy that will fracture if flexed.

Back up to 3 stars from 2. The above written before repair.
